  • QUOTES (13)

    • Sophie: So you guys have all known each other forever.
      Annabelle: Gideon and I met the first day of pre-kindergarten.
      Gideon: Yeah our shrinks introduced us. We've all known each other since the womb once you enter all this you can never leave. It's like the Mafia.

    • Nicholas: My dad doesn't love my mom. He married her for her money.
      Sophie: My dad dumped my mom for my sister's best friend.
      Nicholas: And we have a winner!

    • Sophie: it doesn't feel like home and where I'm from doesn't either. It's weird like I've got no home. Now I sound like a pathetic character from a Dickens's novel.
      Gideon: I for one am very glad you came. Your mere presence has doubled the number of girls who talk to me. And I was thinking we could be friends that way you wouldn't have to miss me cause I'm right here.

    • Nicholas: (introduces himself) Nicholas Fiskes of the New York Fiskes.
      Sophie: I'm Sophie Kerr of the New Mexico Kerr's. Perhaps you've heard of us. Our portfolio consists of a 2002 VW compact and a bust of Sunny Rockman.
      Nicholas: Don't mistake pretension for what is, just old fashion inbreeding.

    • Sophie: This place is big.
      Lynn: Colossal.
      Sophie: We're not in New Mexico anymore.

    • Karen: Calm down woman. You're there! This is the year Sophie.
      Sophie: What year?
      Karen: Your year for sex! Tenth grade, New York, breasts. It's like the perfect storm.

    • Sophie: (chooses a credit card from Paisley's hands) Claudette (picks another card) Madelyn.
      Madelyn: Yes
      Sophie: (picks a third card) Too bad (sarcastically) I really wanted the miles.
      Paisley: (shocked) Guess this one's on me.
      Sophie: Thanks.

    • Paisley: And you're from where, Kansas?
      Sophie: New Mexico.
      Paisley: Oh so your practically Mexican. Our housekeeper, Esmeralda's, from Mexico, maybe you know her?

    • Teacher: Welcome back. I hope you all had a nice summer in whichever Hampton island or planet you people vacation on.

    • Gideon: The BPs.
      Sophie: BPs?
      Gideon: Beautiful People, which they are and we're not, thank god.
      Sophie: I can't believe you guys name your cliques.
      Gideon: It's just easier to loath something when it has a name.

    • Karen: Right now you just want the guys to check you out.
      Sophie: The guys check you out. They ignore me.
      Karen: Not since mother nature paid you a visit.

    • Karen: All that matters the first day if flirt, flirt, flirt.
      Sophie: I failed flirting remember.

    • Sophie (nervously): Um, well... I'm from New Mexico. This is my first time in New York. Uh.. I'm not that good at talking in front of people. I suffer from a mild case of topophobia, also known as stage fright. When I was little, I suffered I had agoraphobia, the fear of open spaces, but I've since licked that. I used to joke with my mom that the thing I didn't suffer from was hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, which is a fear of long words.

  • NOTES (2)


    • The Wizard of Oz
      Sophie: We're not in New Mexico anymore.

      Sophie's line alludes to the line Dorothy said about arriving in Oz in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.

    • Lynn: (to Paisley) What did Polly Mellon say? "Less is more".

      Polly Mellon was the fashion reporter for the New York Times.

    • Vincent Van Gogh
      Gideon: Calm down, I'm not ready to start chopping off any ears yet.

      Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) was an extremely important artist of the 19th century. He was very good friends with another famous painter, Paul Gauguin. In 1888, after having a fight with Gauguin, Van Gogh returned home and took a razor to his own ear and cut downward so that the lower part of his left ear was gone. He then went and gave it to a prostitute.
